Marijuana CandyAccording to the Cannabist, Colorado, has recalled over 99,000 packages of candy laced with marijuana.

The recall is based on concerns the marijuana used to make the candy was treated with pesticides that could be harmful if ingested.

The recall is the 15th in Denver during the past 16 weeks.

This recall underscores another aspect of marijuana legalization many do not consider and that is difficult to address: Marijuana exposed to pesticides or other dangerous chemicals carries additional health risks beyond those ordinarily associated with marijuana.
